Researchers in New Study Thinks They Know How You Voted Due to the Car You Drive 12/8/17 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

A Stanford University study used a computer algorithm to try and determine if a neighborhood leaned to the Hillary left, or the Trump right by looking at vehicles via Google Street View in 200 American cities.  

Their analysis found if sedans outnumbered pickup trucks, in a neighborhood, there was an 88 percent chance the city would vote Democrat. Areas with more pickup trucks were 82 percent more likely to favor Republicans.

They crossed checked their data by using Census Bureau data and voting results.

How many people that drive a Prius voted for Trump? I’m guessing none. Or very Whittle after reading this study.

The moral of the story here is, if you wanna really screw with Google and other data gathers, go buy a wimpy car like a Prius and a pickup truck so that they won’t be able to figure out how you and your wife voted or just put your car in the garage.
